Joe’s Bar & Grill / Islechat
  Wow, this is great! So awesome to see names of people and ddials from the past! I started on Islechat and after a short time became the owner and sysop of Joe’s Bar & Grill. Spent tons of time meeting great people that have remained lifelong friends. Spent a lot of time back then at Photon!

These days, living the dream, in Florida! Hope people that I knew and haven’t kept in touch with are doing well. Maybe I will run into them here!

Bill Basham - thanks for it all!

  Prophet #072
Computer Connection #11, Las Vegas
  I was on the Las Vegas D-Dial called Computer Connection, where my primary handle was Prophet; but I was also known as the man of 1000 handles, because I'd randomly change it to a new pun-related name almost daily, before going back to Prophet. I went to two national events, one in Dallas and one in Houston, back in the 80s.

All three Boston ddials
  Hi Shawn,

I think I wrote D-Dial around 1980, so I would have been 30 then. I had a
friend at the time who was divorcing and was looking to meet new people.
They had a few articles on people who met in Compuserve chat rooms (before
AOL), but the per minute charges really added up that way. My friend
couldn't afford that.

So I figured I could write a chat system that ran on the Apple, and had the
idea to charge a flat monthly rate for access. I guess that idea caught on!

I kept working on D-Dial sporadically until about 1983. A big innovation was
the connecting of multiple systems. That was an interesting system because
everyone's "address" was just the path back to them, so it was different for
everyone on the network. That was an interesting idea that I've never seen
before or since.

Lately, I've been working on Diversi-Tune, which I initially wrote for the
2gs, but rewrote as a Java applet. Lately I've been switching to C#, and
doing some DVD creation stuff

How've you been?

FlashTalk among others
  Hi I’m alive and kicking and still using technology in ways it wasn’t meant for and breaking and fixing crap myself, not as a profession. Always looking for ways to recruit people not pursuing this behavior to start doing it.

I always just, in my own mind, was just coming along for the ride with all the greats. I realize I also have skills and use them everyday but seemingly everyone I knew then, if they’re still around, are proving me right. They are indeed the greats.

The Jungle
  133]seTh: I feel silly using a capital "T' as an adult, but that was my handle on The Jungle!

I laugh when people say nostalgic things about AIM, because back in my day...

But anyway, I'm really glad this site's had a refresh and that history is not only being preserved but is still alive. (It just feels wrong on a smartphone!)

  I was ddialing from around 1987 to 1994 in Vancouver and Victoria BC. Last place was Illusive Deceptions which was actually a GTalk system. There i built a /p BlackJack game in Pascal which earned me a Free user# as long as i was on enough for users to play it :)
This is really awesome!
